Um can you help me? I have a tiny art blog and I haven't been posting as much recently. It's not because I'm not drawing as much, it's because I'm getting more and more scared to post my art. Not because people are being mean, but because of the opposite. They say they like my art, which is nice of them, but now I'm scared to post because I have expectations to live up to. I really don't want to disappoint or offend anyone. Do you have any advice for what to do?

oh, hey, its okay to be afraid, expectations can be really scary, especially when they’re directed towards you

you have to remember that you cant please everyone though, there will be people who are going to be disappointed ( and some might get offended ) but thats all on them, if what you’re doing makes you happy then you shouldnt let anyone stop you from doing it ( not unless its legitimately offensive, which i doubt it is, but thats a whole different story in itself ) 

your art is yours and you have the freedom to present it in a way that is to your own liking and preference :) if your followers do like your art, they’ll stay, you dont have to trouble yourself with those who dont like it

Can you give me some advice? I have an art blog with like less than 10 followers and I've been posting less and less recently. Not because I'm not drawing, because I'm getting more scared to post my art. It's not because people say my art is bad, it's the opposite. They say my art is great, which is nice of them but now I have expectations to live up to and I don't want to disappoint or offend anyone. Can you help me? Thanks.

ok ok so i might not be the best at advice but- It’s ok to be a bit afraid. I know people saying that your art is great might make you feel like you need to live up to certain expectations like “ok that means they expect more drawings that are better” or “they want me to do more so now i have to double the ammount that i post” but?? I kind of see it like this: People like the art you are making right now. It doesn’t quite mean that you have to be better, just keep doing what you’re doing because it’s great already! And i don’t think you would offend anyone if you keep drawing or post less, they’ll most likely understand that you’re taking some time to think about what you want to do. Again, it might not be the best advice but i hope this helped a bit-

Tbh I’m really scared to post a pic of myself and show everyone what I look like, because I don’t want someone to use my pic to catfish someone. Like I just don’t fuck with that shit

I don’t usually make Pissed/Rant posts, but this infuriates me.

As many of you people know, I do conventions on top of youtube for a living. A really really good friend of mine does conventions and commission work for her living and has been doing this as a full paid living for years. (I am not going to say her name, she asked me to keep her anonymous so I will respect her request.) She does more conventions in a year, let alone several years, than I couldn’t ever fathom so her experience with conventions including El Paso Comic Con, is very broad. 

I don’t usually make posts like this or anything concerning drama, but I want this to be known out there and have there be an awareness of this issue, cuz what happened today at El Paso Comicon is wrong, and I just wish I was there to do something about it. 

The reason why I bring this up, is because today she faced a huge ordeal at El Paso Comic Con, and this is what I came to hear about today on her facebook, and over the phone.

My friend’s words: 

“I don’t even know how to put into words what just happened to me. I am still physically shaking. Today at El Paso Comic con I tried to bring in a pasta because I was hungry and hadn’t eaten since yesterday. I was told by staff I couldn’t bring it in so I asked to bring it in anyway because I am vegetarian and can’t eat hotdogs and chicken salads.
They brought over their main supervisors and the head lady began to harshly try to put power over me saying “cons don’t allow food you can’t” she tried to discredit me by asking how many cons I do and how many let food in.
I began to explain again to the other person about how I cannot eat certain foods and as the conversation continued I began to feel an anxiety attack coming on and tears were already happening.
THEN THIS LADY TAKES OUT HER CAMERA TO FILM ME HAVING AN ANXIETY ATTACK.
I ask her to please stop filming me. She put her phone away but surely she still recorded the rest of my conversation without my consent.
The head of the con allows me my food in but at this point I am so anxious I can’t eat.
THEN I bring my food to my friend to give hers to her and explain what happened.
THIS WOMAN FOLLOWS ME TO THE TABLE to “call me out” on lying about being the only one at my table. (I am in full panic attack mode and very upset and not ok)
I explain (while still crying) that this is not my booth and I am giving her her food and telling her what happened. (she is the only one at her booth just like she told her, but this woman falsely accused her simply to destroy her.) 
She then tells me that I have to pack up my stuff and leave the convention. I tell her that I paid for my spot and am staying. (Not just as attendant but an exhibitor with paper work, paying for her spot) She begins to scream at me to “take a chill pill” and go back to my table.
Once I’m at my table I am in such a bad shape a friend of mine HAD TO GET A MEDIC. This panic attack lasted OVER AN HOUR and I am STILL shaking.

I am utterly humiliated and heartbroken. I loved this convention but I will not be coming back now. I have not had such a terrible attack in almost a YEAR.

This is something I am scared to post on Facebook but I know it’s important to let people know what’s going on. When my service animal can’t even help me because I have nearly stopped breathing, you know there’s a problem.”

——-

It’s not like me to make posts about this, the only other time I have is when the issue with UltimaAlmighty happened and even then I still don’t even think he deserved the ending he got despite me telling my share of the story. but this?.., is not ok. 

I want to contact the head manager or either the convention center, or of el Paso Comic Con and report this issue about the supervisor handling a situation that should have been dealt with care, and communication, not a power trip and following her with ill intent only to make hasty accusations that she is innocent of,- so far as to induce her with the worst anxiety attack where she literally couldn’t breath. (and her service animal for emotional support rendered useless). However, my problem here is that I don’t know how to contact the head of El Paso Comic Con. Does anyone know how? My friend was wronged, and I want the head to know about what their supervisor did.

I was definitely scared to start posting regularly in the ks fandom since I knew there were lots of antis but it still hurt to get my first hate messages. I like killing stalking because of it’s beautiful art and amazing suspense and storytelling—and it’s okay for me and everyone else to like it too. We’re not freaks or evil. It’s okay for us to like it and to make jokes and art about it.

Lugia’s Song - Harmony disturbed

So this is the video I was scared to post! I did a flute cover of Lugia’s Theme Song which played in the movie. It’s a very short video but I really hope you guys like it! Looking forward to making more!

(that’s me sitting on the edge!)

Please do let me know what you think!  Would love to have your thoughts! 

So I’m not into terrible April Fools jokes, but I do follow the “confuse, don’t abuse” school of pranks, and I adore them. For example, I fully intend to make the bed, but hide an enormous, yard long fish pillow on my boyfriend’s side of the bed, so when he pulls back the covers he’ll just find a fish pillow tucked in in his spot, with its head on the pillow. Maybe with a sleeping cap on it. 

So with that in mind I won’t do any jump scares or post fake news stories or anything mean like that, but I will post some really terrible puns and subject you to them. Be forewarned.

(In advance I’m super sorry if you’ve heard this before and are sick of it, I was offline for a couple weeks and idk what’s been mentioned before. Also I’m scared to post this on my own tumblr heh) Okay so something has been bugging me about the whole mTV thing. Why did Mark say he needed to shave for it? When all the egos are sitting around the table, they are shaven, but in the promo thing Warf created, Mark and associated acts had beards. We associate beardlessness with young Mark. So, what if this meeting happened in the past? Like, this entire video is set in 2013? Maybe all the egos are angry that Mark created a youtube channel and are trying to take control of HIM back. But to do this, they’d need to slowly introduce themselves to the audience to gain favor and lessen Mark’s sway over people. In mTV, they dream up this odd “TV show” where they each have roles and they portray themselves all as cohosts of sorts, as Mark’s equals in a way. But what if that was all this was? An idea the egos had? Because obviously, when you look at Mark’s channel history no thing of this sort ever happened. So this was the basic idea the egos had, but it actually manifested itself in real life (outside mTV) differently. For example, the Silver Shepherd, Ed Edgar, Bim Trimmer, and the Host managed to get themselves some visibility through Cyndago skits. Google scored a couple videos with Matthias. And Dark and Wilf were the lucky ones, the ones who managed to be on the actual channel. We the audience saw these “characters” and slowly fell in love with them, seeing them only as benign beings in silly sketches who don’t actually exist or anything. But little do we know that we are giving them footholds into Mark, giving them more opportunity to do what they’ve been wanting to do all along. The entirety of the past four years have been unfolding according to the plan the egos set in place in that room in mTV. And when Mark says we’ll see more of them soon, he means it. But not in the way we think.

Obviously there are some flaws with this theory (why is septiplier saying to kill them? Are they clairvoyant or something? And how did the Host get a role as the Author before losing his eyes mid-2013?) and it probably sounds a bit far-fetched but I’m too tired to think through it all haha. It’s just been rattling around in my brain for a few weeks and I needed to get it out. Thanks for reading though!!


…i…i have nothing to even say…i love this so much holy shit
most theories are a bit out there but those ones are the most interesting! Plus I don’t even think it’s far fetched at all

The first time you see him, you are trying to park your car. You’re late to an appointment and the parking lot is full, leaving you with no choice but to park on the street. Parallel parking is not something you’re fond of, especially when you’re on a busy road in the middle of town and handfuls of people are walking up and down the sidewalk, watching you struggle and laughing at your misfortune.

You spot him right away. He’s an eyesore among the crowd, the only one not dressed for the weather and you can’t help but wonder how he manages to look so comfortable with snow gathering in his hair. The sight of him is so interesting that you can’t help but stare. You momentarily forget about the task at hand because you’re so caught up in watching this stranger walk toward you that you don’t even notice you’ve backed up too far until you feel your car bump against the one behind you.

Panic sets in immediately and you tear your eyes away from the stranger to look and see if anyone else has noticed. Out of all the people on the street, very few have even glanced in your direction. Breathing a sigh of relief, you inch your car up just a bit and reach down to put it in park.

When you look up, the stranger is standing in the center of the sidewalk staring right at you, eyebrows raised, sly smile on his face. You’re not sure what causes you to react so quickly, but you throw the gear shift into drive and speed out of your parking spot like a bat out of hell, appointment be damned.

You take a moment to glance out of the passenger side mirror and it alarms you to realize that the stranger is still standing there, smiling fondly as you leave.
